For my sister’s wedding, my mother had a very crafty co-worker make a card box in the shape of a wedding cake. It was white, it had pearls… okay, so it was a bit cheesey, but it did the trick. My mother saved the card box with the hope that when I (finally) got married, I could use it too. For five years, that card box stood in our basement; it was a resilient card box — unlike everything else down there, it never turned green.
Alas, this past summer, my parents sold their house and moved into a (very) small temporary apartment in Manhattan. All their stuff (card box included) was placed in a temperature controlled storage facility off of some exit on the Garden State Parkway. The plan was to find a condo or co-op quickly; move in a couple of months. The plan didn’t work out and the card-box-that-could is still somewhere between the guest room furniture and my baby grand.
No worries I said, I will make a new card box. Bigger, better, a bit cheesier than the old. I even found stacking heart-shaped hat boxes at Nashville Wraps.
I was planning on ordering them this evening… when, out of nowhere… I discovered this lovely bird cage at Wedding Things. Only $45 bucks + delivery. Woo hoo – another item off my list; no glue gun required.
